Wedding Bells...

WEDDING BELLS

 

The first day I seen her when she worked at my friends house I said that she was the one and that I would marry her.  That was before I even heard her name.  I was right.  Kelsey and I couldn't be happier and we make the best team I could ever imagine a couple could be.

 

I was so glad that Kelsey could come on the road with me on the “On Mercy Street tour,” because a lot of you guys got to meet her.  You guys are like an extended family to me and have stuck with me through thick and thin since the start.  I Want to say a massive thanks on behalf of Kelsey and myself as to how kind you are you the both of us.  We are forever grateful.  I truly am one of the luckiest musicians on the planet to have fans like you. I know i say it so much but I really do mean it every time.  Your dedication and loyalty to me is unbelievable.  The Harkin Army are unbelievable.

 

THE BIG DAY

We debated forever on where we would have the wedding as we have friends everywhere across the planet…. and a few from mars as well it seems….haha.

We are going to get married in Ireland at our home in Donegal.  I have been working on an old 140 farm house for over a year now whenever I get time off with my family and pulling in as many favors as I can from friends to get the work done. Thats where we will be having the celebrations.

As you know me it will be no “ordinary,” wedding…  We are doing everything ourselves as thats the only way wet know how!

 

The day is going to be filled with friends, family, music, food, love and laughter.  If I could bring you all I would but… well.. you know. As you can imagine, we will have so much music on the day… I’ve written a song for the occasion with my Buddy Jack Tempchin!  No-one apart from myself and Jack have heard the song, and wont until the big day.  It will defiantly be on the next record.  It would bring a tear to a glass eye. :)

 

We will be getting married on Saturday July 2nd 2016.  I can hardly wait to tie the knot with this girl and also have all our friends and family from all over the world in our home in Donegal Ireland where my heart lies.  We have been working so hard to organize it but I know Its gonna be such an amazing day and i can hardly wait and watch it all come to bloom infant of my eyes.

 

So many of you have been asking about the big day. We only sent the invites out last week to our friends and family. We wanted to have them out before we told anyone else as you can understand.  A lot of you have been most generously asking me where you can send us gifts for our wedding.  Luckily, we already have a home full of everything we need - so have a look at this wish list below that we’ve made mainly for our friends and family! But as so many of you are really persistent!!! :) :) ....You can contribute to our dream honeymoon if ya really really want to, and from the rest of you... your kind words and blessings are massively welcomed!!!

Here is the link: www.honeyfund.com

 

 

We haven't planned exactly where we are going yet but we have handful of ideas floating around in our heads. Hopefully somewhere with no wifi, but just enough to Instagram the odd picture to keep you and our family in the loop!  

Its been a crazy ride with work the past few years and this really is the cherry on the top.

    Dearest Kelsey & Keith, I have not been online due to computer & server issues for weeks. Tonight I am so happy I came only to see your recent posts,Keith & read your wonderful news !!! I had the great privilege to meet & spend some time with Kelsey at your Bridgeport,CT gig a while back & just loved her. I will send her the picture which my friend took of Kelsey & I.I really treasure it !!! I finally had a pic with you but we were too much in a shaded area so even trying to lighten it up didn't help to see both of us.Once again I am "over the moon" happy for you both & will send something for the "honeyfund" but also a sentimental gift.My loving best wishes to you both for a long & joyfilled life together !!!

    Dear Keith, I would like to wish you the best of luck, love, and happiness in your new venture as a married man!! Although I must say my heart breaks a little. You know how fantasy can be...lol. Love you and all your music. It got me through the hardest time of my life. I got really sick and was inches away from death! Luckily my my nursing and Doctor friends who I worked with for over 10 years put their heads together and found out the problem. After a couple of weeks in ICU and a couple more in IMU I was finally ready to come home. That was 04/16 and I've never felt better and continue to feel better than I have my whole life. The one thing that got me through was listening to your music and watching your Hallalujah video no less than 4 times a day. All I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! ???????. When are you coming to Texas (The Woodlands, Houston). I want to be front row and center when you do!!!! God Bless??

    Keith and Kelsey: I wish you a lifetime of happiness and a fun adventure of a marriage. Keith, I just learned that you are permanently leaving CT, and honestly it was not a surprise. I'd been sensing you pulling back from CT, which is what must happen to set you free to do your music, your way. I'm proud of you for taking this step on your new path. I'm looking forward to your solo TOUR DATES (HINT: CHRISTMAS AT Volcanic Theater, here in Bend, OR). You and Kelsey are such a great couple. I wish you all the best forever. May you have MANY children to share, as through their eyes, you will see yourselves.

    Love and blessings to you on your special day! Please, pictures and a video??
